Jen-Hsun Huang Co-Founder & CEO of Nvidia will take the stage at the annual GPU Technology Conference to talk about a host of new graphics technologies and products. From new gaming initiatives spanning the GameWorks program, low level APIs such as DirectX 12 and Vulkan to the world of Virtual Reality and perhaps most exciting of all Nvidia's next generation Pascal graphics cards.
last year Nvidia took the opportunity to talk extensively about its next generation Pascal graphics architecture. Including the exciting new technologies that it will adopt such as second generation High Bandwidth Memory, NV-Link, mixed precision compute and 16nm FinFET process technology. This year Pascall will yet again no doubt take center stage.
The web has been abuzz with whispers and flooded with leaks over the past couple of months about Pascal. More specifically, about Nvidia potentially demoing a Pascal graphics card for the very first time on stage.
